Stage 1
27-Jul-2015 07:20:37 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Day 1 done…ended up being longer than expected at just over 47km. Took it easy and feeling pretty good. Few blisters started to come up so the real pain starts tomorrow.
Dilpa is still working hard while I am about to enjoy the pleasures of freeze dried food – she was up at 5.30am and its 6.30pm. Both of us working hard!

Ben
Energy: 7/10 food needed
Feet: 7/10 some taping already and tomorrow will get interesting
Unusual incident: I didn’t eat all my snacks. Unheard of.
